Very interesting place to visit , where you can see flour being milled in the old way & then buy some to take away with you. Outside there are small animals to pet & you can buy a cuppa. Room for kids to run around.

Only small, but interesting to learn about the history of the Mill and also how it works and how the flour is produced. Also have opportunity to buy flour and freshly baked bread if you're lucky

The Burcott Mill is an extremely nice palce to stay and is opposite to the Burcott Inn. It has a Water Wheel from when it was a working Mill and the Mill omits a soothing, relaxing and pleasant sound. It puts the world min perspective. The rooms ar e all well presented and thge Br eakfast is great. So peaceful,... More

We did visited the Mill for £3.60 each for the tour. The history of the mill by the owner was excellent value as you get to learn about the history of the mill and the history of flour. The gentleman who runs the mill and B&B was very good at explaining how the mill worked and we found it interesting.... More

We stayed here last year in Spring 2013 when we were looking at houses in the area. The breakfast & location were lovely & the owner set the water mill working on the morning so the children could see how it worked. Very interesting.

Was taken on this tour with my wife, having discovered how great the bread is. It was very very interesting - the way it all worked was very clever. Anyone who has not been to a working mill before should go - not only educational but was fascinating. Our descendants were a clever bunch :o) Also one of the end... More

We've been to the mill a couple of times but never made it on a family tour until yesterday - it was brilliant! My 4 year old loved learning about the processes of milling from the very charismatic and engaging miller, and was really excited to see the water turning the wheel. Thank you!

Don't beleive the national press about Somerset being sunk and underwater. We've just spent two days in Wookey and Wells. Burcott Mill is a working Water Mill that still grinds locally sourced flour. They also sell Bread made on the premises by the Miller and his wife, Lou. A spendid place to visit and well worth it. About a 6... More
